This is one of those short-ingredient-list, quick-stir-fry dinners that just knocks it out of the park. Serve with jasmine rice to have the easiest, simplest, and heartiest dinner at fewer than 400 calories per serving.
This salad is so perfect and hearty, you won't miss the taco shells. Just combine the crumbled ground turkey, pico de gallo, Greek yogurt (instead of sour cream), cheese and a lime wedge!
The colors in the pinwheels are so incredibly vibrant, which makes for such a fun snack. Eating a rainbow of foods is a great way to ensure that we are getting a variety of vitamins and minerals, as different antioxidants create the different colors in fruits and vegetables.
Instant ramen noodles were a staple in my home growing up. They are also a go-to for many college students. There are just so many varieties and tastes to choose from, and all you do is add boiling water. Unfortunately, they are also laden with sodium and are high in calories. Thankfully this homemade version has fewer calories and preservatives, yet we're not sacrificing the convenience.
